Chapter 4 excerpt

Revue de presse

"Of all the Warcraft manga, comic books, and novels I have read, Arthas has the most solid, balanced writing and best realized characters....There's much to love about this book....When it ended, I could feel the pangs in my heart as if I was one of the participants." --

"This book is an overdosed cocktail of lore and continuity that will numb your senses....I can only say one thing about this. I (beep) love this book!!!" --

Que c'est mal écrit...D'ailleurs pour ceux qui possèdent le livre, je vous propose un petit jeu. Essayez de trouver le verbe "grin" sur quasiment chacune des pages. A croire que l'auteur ne connait que ce mot et que tous ses protagonistes se promènent dans Azeroth avec un sourire sur le visage. Très peu de subtilité, un style lourd...Bref, ce n'est pas de la grande littérature.
Quant à l'histoire, les fans seront ravis d'apprendre l'histoire complète d'Arthas jusqu'à sa "fusion" avec le Roi Liche.

HASH(0x9b2dd348) étoiles sur 5 Good Place to Start 24 avril 2009
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur
Format: Relié
If you're a player of World of Warcraft, but not into the old RTS games or the books that have come before, this novel is the place to jump and see some of the story behind the game you've been playing.

Christie Golden has crafted a strong character-centric tale following the life of Arthas Menethil. It shows him growing into a young man, joining the ranks of the paladins, and his eventual fall from grace in a way that is quick, concise, and yet still meaningful. Arthas is portrayed as neither a spoiled brat or an arrogant upstart, but as a well-meaning person with a good soul and a few very human and realistic character flaws that gets twisted into something horrible, party by outside forces, but also by the lack of control he has over himself. As I read it, I found myself comparing it to the fall of Anakin Skywalker in the Star Wars Saga, and I hate to say it, Golden did a superior job with her take on how a hero becomes the villain.

If this book has any weakness, is that its a little too short. The first two volumes take place at a good pace, always moving but taking the time to really show us all that's transpiring. As the book moves through its third act, those familiar with Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne will note at how briefly the events of the undead campaign are covered. In contrast to the first two thirds of the book, the last third skips over large chunks of the storyline to make sure the crucial points get the time needed, which is good.

The main story in no way feels slighted. But for those of already familiar with the first draft of events, so to speak, it seems as if Golden were either pressed for time, or had a page count limit she was working under because the trek through Anub'Arak is given only the barest of mentions, and the encounter with Sapphiron is treated as if it never happened. An odd choice, given how the dragon features prominently in the World of Warcraft game at the moment.

Lastly, the book concludes with a Further Reading section. This is something new readers can really appreciate. The novel touches on events and places from other games, and expanded upon in earlier novels. This section lets the reader know where to learn more about those places and events, what novels to buy and what games to play. Some might call it shameless marketing, but it makes a handy reference section for new readers.

HASH(0x9b2dd39c) étoiles sur 5 A good "Bad Guy" story 3 mai 2009
Par Niz - Publié sur
Format: Relié
First let me say, if you are a player of the game and want to expand a little on the mythos behind it, then this would be a good book for you. If you are like me and have read pretty much all the WoW books, then "Arthas" is a must read. For those of you that neither play the game, nor have read any other WoW book, you won't feel slighted. This is a good fantasy novel about a prince who follows the road paved with good intentions to hell.

Christie Golden seems to be a fan of writing the "bad guy" story. She's written both Rise of the Horde and Lord of the Clan (though the argument could be made that the leader of the orcs is not a bad guy in the true sense). With Arthas: Rise of the Lich King she gets the nod from Blizzard (the company who owns WoW) to write an account on one of the most powerful and profound characters in the WoW universe. And she does VERY well.

I agree, however, with the other reviews that state she seemed to become bored, or was strapped for time, near the end of the story. While I understand the desire to not "re-write" some things that have appeared (or may appear) in other WoW novels, sometimes the story jumped from "A" to "C" to without satisfactorily touching on "B". There are parts in the book where it was almost like "By the way, there was this big war and the good guys won"; where one sentence was the springboard past epic events in the history. Noticing it as one who has a strong understanding of the lore, I can only imagine someone who has no idea scratching their heads before reading on.

Otherwise, as I've said, enjoy the story, you won't be disapointed.

HASH(0x9b2dd7d4) étoiles sur 5 Great book 20 mai 2009
Par Sioken - Publié sur
Format: Relié
This book was really great. It followed the lore of Warcraft very close. This book even created a childhood for Arthas that was never really known. In the game I didnt't really like Arthas that much for the way you acted as a Paladin. In this book it can make like him for the bit where he is actually kind and not wanting vengence. You see the relationship Arthas and Jaina had that was not real clear in the Warcraft game. Pretty this book starts with his childhood and all the way to where hes at in the Frozen Throne. Which this is why the book is Rise of the Lich King.

I say anyone that loved the Warcraft lore should read this or any people that have played World of Warcraft and want to know who the Lich King really was before all madness broke loose in Azeroth.

HASH(0x9b2ddba0) étoiles sur 5 Completely faithful 1 mai 2009
Par Tasha Mac - Publié sur

Christie Golden knocks it out of the park again. Arthas's story is one driven by the characters and their emotions more than bare-bones action, and of all the people in Blizzard's writing arsenal, Golden is the only one who could tackle such a story. And that she does, with amazing grace and tenderness toward every character, delivering each in an unbiased light. The lore is rich without being intimidating, the characters warm and developed, and it gives us Warcraft lore buffs some tasty things to chew on for a long while after. Highly recommended for anyone who likes Warcraft!

HASH(0x9b2ddc84) étoiles sur 5 Interesting lore on the Lich King 7 juin 2009
Par Nikki Douglas - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This book does a great job tying in with the current World of Warcraft universe and gives a terrific background to Arthas Menethil who later becomes the Lich King.

This is superb storytelling within a limited framework (there wasn't much the author could expand on since she was tied to what was already known) yet it does have a few problems.

The transformation that Arthas undergoes to become the Lich King seems rushed and forced and completely out of character. It has to be thus obviously but I felt more time and care could have been taken to understand why he chose the path he did.

Before he finds Frostmourne (the sword itself takes over from there) it would have been a compelling point to truly understand what drove Arthas to forsake all that he knew and loved to make the decisions he did that lead to the slaughter of an entire small city.

Perhaps it was fear- most poor decisions made are fear-based but I would have liked to see this explored in more depth.

This didn't prevent me from thoroughly enjoying the story however and really liking the characters - especially Arthas and Jaina.

I also enjoyed learning how the Blood Elves came to be and further stories about many of the heroes of Azeroth.

Well done.
